I Can Teach Others
The purpose of this module is to provide the opportunity for students to explore the basic nature of teaching. Does
helping always mean doing something for someone, or does it mean teaching him to do something for himself?
How much of a teacher’s job is to help others? How do teachers help students?
[During this module, arrangements should be made for ProTeam students to work in classrooms as
teaching assistants. Students will plan lessons to teach groups of students. We suggest you make contact
with teachers before you begin the module to make the necessary arrangements. Be sure to tell the
teachers that for the effort to be successful and meet curriculum goals, ProTeam students should have
opportunities to work directly with students (coaching, tutoring, reading stories, checking work, etc.).
Teacher resources are included to provide assistance with setting up the ProTeamers’ teaching
Each student will create an outline titled “What All Teachers Need to Know. “The class will work together
to create a poster similar to the one based on the book All I Really Need to Know I Learned in
Kindergarten. Each student will contribute to the poster at least one thing teachers need to know. Copies
of their outlines will be included in their portfolios.
Teachers may want to create their own module assessment and/or allow students to design their own,
provided the teacher approves it ahead of time.
